A list of formulae used as drugs and other medical preparations. The British National Formulary is an authoritative six-monthly publication containing information and advice on medicines and drugs. Published jointly by the British Medical Association and the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain, with input from the Department of Health, it is distributed to all NHS doctors by the government. In 2005 a BNF for children was published and many hospitals and general practices produce formularies for use by doctors working in those facilities.
